I have two interviews this week recorded on location in Manchester. James Senior from Microsoft UK talks about the “Windows Vista After Hours” events hosted around the UK. He explains why they where running the events and how they were showing off consumer products like Windows Media Center and Windows Home Server to IT Professionals. The 2nd interview is with James Thompson of Tranquil PC, Tranquil produce a great range of Windows Home Server products (like the one I review a couple of weeks ago).

I also have email, news items and the launch of The Media Center Show Awards 2007
